P* r h Community Center.
At *' le community center held at
•''"'k school on Friday evening under
,de auspices of Park Parent-Teachers'
association, a packed house greeted
Governor Alexander, applauding his
attitude toward the organization. He
illustrated the indifference of the Boise
bubllc toward the schools and mothers'
circles, by citing his difficulty in ilnd
*ng his way and the dense ignorance
of ,hose ° r whom he made Inquiries.
One business man had never heard of
Park school, but thought it was some
where among the foothills.
The speaker cited the public schools
as the bulwark of our liberties, the
foundation of a democracy that guar
anteed to all equality of privilege and
opportunity and said it behooved us
people to pay more attention to
and get better acquainted with an in

perpetuating our liberties and rights

with the welfare of t liât child, v. as not
only a poor specimen of parent but
also a poor type of citizen and patriot
and he advised the association to stay
on the job until they had brought into
the fold every mother and every father
in the city of Boise; urged them to go
out into the highways and byways and
drag them in, and be not discouraged
nor deterred by ridicule and criticism.
In referring to the entertainment
which the Mothers' congress ij prepar
ing to put on in order to raise funds
for the state work, and which the circle
discussed, be appealed to every father
and mother in Boise, to get back of the
association and boost it with their pat
ronage, adding that every child whose
father was unable
unwilling to fur

era or.
The* addresM was an earnest plea for
the recognition of tlie need and service
to the community of the Mothers' con

exceedingly grateful.
